Sometimes saving the environment trumps saving money. Enter Green Dimes – you pay just a dime a day ($36/year) to significantly reduce your junk mail. I’ve always found junk mail to be an annoyance (and I’m sure it’s an equal or greater annoyance for the mailman). But it’s much more than annoying and inconvenient to the environment. According to Green Dimes, 100 MILLION trees are sacrificed and 28 BILLION gallons of water are dumped into producing junk mail. All so we can shred credit card offers and toss consumer catalogs. It’s rather infuriating when you really think about it.

A membership can reduce your junk mail by up to 70%. A great gift to yourself, a friend, and Mother Earth.
